Broward County Elections Supervisor Brenda Snipes Has a History of Violations

With the 2018 Florida Senate and Gubernatorial elections looking like they could be headed to a recount, Americans will be hearing a lot about the Broward County supervisor of elections, Dr. Brenda Snipes.

So, who is Snipes, and why is she so controversial?

Snipes was appointed elections supervisor in 2003 by former Florida Governor Jeb Bush and has been at the helm of Broward County elections ever since.

According to the Sun Sentinel, Broward County “is the biggest Democratic county in the state.” More than 50 percent on the county’s registered voters are Democrats.

In 2016, Snipes was convicted of violating “state and federal laws by destroying ballots from a 2016 Congressional race too soon,” which Snipes called a mistake, according to the Sun Sentinel.

That same year, Snipes “was sued because some mail ballots did not include a question about a state constitutional amendment on allowing medical marijuana.”

Now Broward County is once again at the “epicenter of another recount.” But before it gets to that point, it has to finish counting ballots from Election Day.

Snipes had a testy exchange with reporters on Thursday when they asked her why it’s taking so long to count all the ballots.

“But other counties didn’t have 600,000 votes out there,” Snipes told reporters according to ABC News Miami.

A reporter pointed out to Snipes that Miami-Dade had that many more voters and ballots cast.

“Well, have you been inside my — never mind, let me go check. I’ll check,” Snipes responded.
